Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
Our IVF Miracle Baby is on the Way!!!
I am beyond ecstatic and blessed to be able to share my BFP story. Although it's still early (5 1/2 weeks pregnant), I thought I would share our story to give hope to all the other ladies struggling with TTC. This board has been a lifesaver for me so I wanted to reciprocate! My DH (32) and I (31) have been trying to conceive for 3 1/2 years. We both had all the diagnostic testing, I was fine and DH had an issue with morphology (only 2% normal looking sperm). We both were on Clomid and did 3 IUI cycles which all ended in BFN. We began our IVF journey in July 2013. Our 1st cycle we retrieved 21 eggs, 17 fertilized and we did a 3 day transfer of 2 embryos (8 cell and 9 cell). We were devstated when we got our BFN. We decided we were going to try again right away. This time, my RE changed my entire medication protocol, I began accupuncture weekly and at retrieval we had 13 eggs, 8 fertilized, and we did a 5 day transfer of 1 blast and 1 morula. I got my first (very faint) BFP on 6dp5t and I took about 10 more over the next three days because I was in disbelief!!! We had our 1st beta test on our 3 year anniversary and got the amazing call that we are indeed pregnant!! This is our 1st baby and we feel completely blessed. I wish you all the very best in your TTC journey's and I hope that all of you get to experience this miracle!!
